About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Responses - Heads-Up - Town Hall & Tea Party Meetings

The responses to the subject message pretty much followed #1 below. Response #2 adds to the original message.

---Response #1---

This entire scene you described is appalling - can't even have an honest and fair town hall meeting anymore. Very difficult to make yourself heard unless you are one of the "establishment".

---Response #2---

Hi Doug,

You might be interested to know that there was a letter to the editor in the Hunterdon Democrat last week that complained about the same thing at a Lance town hall meeting somewhere in Hunterdon. Someone asked the writer, Lee Anderson, if she was from MoveON.org and when she replied "Not a chance" an elderly woman said, "I hope you'll be civil." MoveON.org is definitely using older people to monopolize town hall meetings. Lee Anderson went on to say "Their clear message of "shared sacrifice" meant that our money was necessary to further their agenda of "progressive" social programs for those most "in need."

Thanks for getting the word out about this, Doug.
